Sanwo-Olu on Jandor: Governance isn’t trial and error, requires experience

By  | 

The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has dismissed talks that his re-election bid in the 2023 elections might be under threat by the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor, and his running mate, Funke Akindele.

Speaking on Sunday night during a Channels Television programme, Sanwo-Olu expressed confidence that Lagosians will vote for him at the polls, based on his achievements in office.

“If you have an emergency at 3 am, who would you call, what are your chances? Will you call a man that has the experience that has gone through the trenches before, that lives with it, that understands what the issues are and that appreciates what challenge you have even at that 3am? Or will you leave your chance to a man who does not know where the dial is and does not know what the issue of governance is?,” he said.

“This is Lagos, this is an informed audience. This is not a tea party. We are talking of real governance and the lives of over 20 million Nigerians bigger than the economy of Ghana or Kenya which is in itself a country. It is not a circus, it is a real thing and I don’t want to spite anyone because I have respect for all of the candidates that have emerged and the candidate of the particular party you are talking about.”

The governor added that the governance of Lagos requires competence and a lot of experience to deliver the needed results to the citizens.

“But how do you begin to start, what about his pedigree? You can’t run a business of 100 people but you want to run an economy. The governance of Lagos is not a trial and error, you need to hit the ground running. Lagosians have seen the experience and they will vote for a man that will roll up his sleeves to keep the city safe, the biggest and safest city, that provides opportunities for people, and that is Babajide Sanwo-Olu.”
